Israeli Ambassador: Hungary Not Ready to Face Its Shoah Role

By: JTA

Israel’s foreign ministry accused Hungary of not being ready to face its role in the Holocaust.

Hungarian Ambassador to Israel Andor Nagy told the Hungarian media over the weekend that Rafi Schultz, deputy director for European Affairs at Israel’s foreign ministry, told Nagy that there were doubts in Israel over Hungary’s willingness to confront its past in a “direct and brave manner.”

Nagy was summoned to Israel’s foreign ministry on Feb. 13.

Schultz questioned Nagy about the official Hungarian position on several issues, including Hungary’s observance of the 70th anniversary of the Holocaust, and the growing anti-Semitism in the country.

The main Hungarian Jewish umbrella group, Mazsihisz, said in a decision issued early last week that it would “stay away” from the government’s Holocaust year events over plans to build a memorial to the German occupation, controversial remarks by the director of a government-sponsored research institute and the government’s refusal to share plans or involve Mazsihisz in building a second Holocaust museum in Budapest.

  1. whack jobs, speak up. The Illuminati are after us.

  2. When will the Jews own their responsibility for the 40+ million Russian Orthodox Christians they killed in the ‘soviet’ gulags?

  3. Juliana Victoria, I don’t know which to laugh more at; your ignorance or your bias.

  4. Clifford Webb, Nothing like good ol’ Anti-Semitism to make you feel alive.

  5. 6% of Bolesheviks were once Jewish. Sorry to spoil the party

  6. Hungary allowed the Nazi Czatary to live in an apartment in Budapest without trying him. This is proof of what the ambassador is talking about.
    The average Hungarian was cheering when children were being drowned by the thousands in Budapest, that is why it was broadcast on radio.
